A Shooting In Colorado Leaves Four Injured And 1 Dead

 February 6, 2023

According to a FOX 31 report, following a shooting in Colorado, early Sunday, one person was left dead and four others were injured. The shooting took place just before 1 a.m. in the 12200 block of Point Reyes Drive, in the Meridian Ranch neighborhood located, in Falcon. El Paso County Sheriff's Office responded after receiving reports of multiple shots being fired in the area.

Lieutenant Deborah Mynatt told The Denver Post, that four of the victims were shot, one fatally, and one other person was injured in another way during the attack. Mynatt added that the shooting is "likely linked" to a carjacking that happened Friday and is not believed to be a random attack.

Expanding more than one block, a shelter in place, was erected surrounding the crime scene, and was in place from 3-4:30 a.m. as investigators collected evidence. Mynatt further indicated that there are multiple suspects in the shooting. Colorado Springs Police Department and the FBI are reportedly assisting in the investigation. The names, ages and genders of the victims, have yet to be released.

“We need a new approach to reducing gun violence. Rather than demonizing gun owners, perhaps we should focus on cutting funds from the gun profiteers. Instead of concentrating on the issue of rights, maybe we should approach it as an issue of conscience.”
